After posting the pictures of Blue Moon Progress l realised the second half didn't look right!
l'd used a different hook and it was shrinking, was hard and l wasn't happy with the look
So a total remake over night, while looking for the hook l had used originally
I found my 12mm hook under the sofa thought it an omen so remade
Blue Moon using the 12mm and 65 sts
It's growing a lot quicker....is lighter softer and more textured looking
same stripes......l undid one row at a time and remade it into the new blanket
Surprising how each row used a different amount of yarn...my tension must be very erratic hehe
Just a few ends left over that will be made into small flowers so nothing wasted
How big is your box?
1st Jan 2011....it measured just over 14" x 13"
5th Jan 2011......it has shrunk to 14" x 12"
and l've gained a new hobby...cooking!
I'm really really enjoying all the cooking....
When l 1st got married l cooked a lot.....but gave up because of my ex MIL....another story!
Every recipe l've tried has been wonderful....always a good incentive to do more
well done WW.....A Fabulous book and a great sale buy!
I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to loose a few pounds
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone
hugs to all xx
